Offices to Residential, 2016/3866, 3870 and 3873
The Battersea Society objects to the granting of prior approval for offices to become residential set out within these three applications. These join some thirty applications for what is clearly a major housing development.
We find it inexplicable that there is seen to be no need for any assessment of the housing mix as a whole, the requirement for there to be affordable housing within the mix and, not least, the substantial loss of office space to be allowed without further evaluation.
We can hope that this one letter can be taken as an objection to each one.
We have written earlier to object to the thirty applications numbered:
2016: 2092, 2095, 2098, 2261, 2264, 2265, 2267, 2392, 2394, 2396, 2413, 2414, 2415, 2416, 2438, 2444, 2454, 3363, 3364, 3365, 3441, 3444, 3445, 3447, 3448, 3450, 3451, 3452, 3455, and 3707
We assume that a reference to a new housing scheme in Battersea in a recent Evening Standard refers to these applications.
Close to the pier, housing scheme Ivory and Calico Riverside completes this month with 34 one-,two- and three-bedroom apartments starting from £525,000 plus service charges of £3.40 per square foot. Call Hamptons International 020 7354 7049
